READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by pesce_gurl

I found this in a book that my mama gave to me (Famous Brand Name Recipes) and I love it! I'm a soup addict and the only meat that I eat is seafood so it works out great for me. Hope you enjoy! Microwave instructions follow.

Great dish! I have a big family and usually triple the recipes. As a result I prepared the seafood separately by cooking it in an Old Bay brand crab boil. In addition to the shrimp I added fresh mussels, crayfish and catfish. I sauteed the bite-size catfish chunks in olive oil & butter, with a little salt & pepper. Awesome Fat Tuesday meal!
